Is Threat Hunting the Next Frontier: Separating the Hype from the Reality

Presented by

Dr. James Stanger Chief Technology Evangelist, CompTIA

About this talk

One of the more interesting-sounding job skills today is that of the “threat hunter.” Let’s talk about the activity of “threat hunting,” and deconstruct it a little bit. The idea behind threat hunting is to proactively look for adversaries and for traces of their activity. So, is threat hunting all that it’s cracked up to be? Is looking for trouble really the best approach today? It’s very possible that the one key element of threat hunting is one fundamental assumption: That you’ve already been hacked, but you just don’t quite realize it yet. In this presentation, James will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of “active defense,” and where it fits in with other security activities.
